New Approved Tower Mounted Amplifier Makes Installation Easier

first_imgWestell Technologies has announced a significant enhancement to its Tower Mounted Amplifier (TMA) solutions. Westell’s new B90 TMA is a first-of-a-kind solution that re-injects the radio frequency (RF) signal protocol known as AISG (Antenna Interface Standards Group) from the RF base station into the antenna port of the TMA, thus allowing it to be received by both the TMA and the antenna. This feature allows the customer to save on installation time and costs, while improving reliability.The B90 TMA is an advanced and cost-effective cell site optimization solution. It was engineered to streamline the installation process with one less cable to worry about and optimize signal pass-through. This TMA is carrier approved and will soon to be deployed by the largest and most reputable wireless service provider in the country.Westell B90 TMA Benefits Seamless interoperability with a new generation of Smart-Bias T antennas via AISG signal re-injection in the TMA’s antenna port Eliminates the dedicated AISG cable between the TMA and the antenna Same field-proven software revision as the already-deployed A90 generation of TMAs Fully backward compatible with older non-Smart-Bias-T antennas – includes a dedicated AISG port which can be used as needed – thus one TMA can be deployed for both types of antennaslast_img read more

Cambium Using Facebook’s Terragraph Technology for its New Multi-Gigabit 60 GHz mm-Wave Radios

first_imgCambium Networks, a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, announced the availability of new solutions based on 60 GHz millimeter wave technology, unleashing the potential of wireless broadband in urban and suburban areas with multi-gigabit performance that was previously only achievable by optical fiber.The Cambium Networks 60 GHz cnWave solution uses Facebook Connectivity’s Terragraph technology and Qualcomm Technologies’ latest 802.11ay compliant technology to deliver reliable, fiber-like internet speeds at a significantly lower cost of ownership and faster time to market than alternative last-mile wired networks.Cambium’s 60 GHz design architecture is built on the 802.11ay standard for higher capacity and better channel access and mesh support. Coupled with intelligent management software, the new Cambium solution enables a very low total cost of ownership that delivers connectivity at a fraction of the cost of trenching fiber. It is also an ideal complement to cable networks struggling to deliver the symmetrical performance now needed as 60 GHz cnWave delivers symmetrical multi-gigabit performance (up and down), an especially critical capability in today’s work-from-home environment. The compact size of 60 GHz cnWave means it is easily mounted on street furniture and is capable of operating in point-to-point, in point-to-multipoint or in efficient mesh modes, for last mile access to subscriber homes, enterprises, multi-dwelling buildings, CCTV networks, public Wi-Fi networks or potentially as backhaul for small cell 4G or 5G network traffic.Cambium President and CEO Atul Bhatnagar said they are one of the few, if not the only wireless company deploying a multi-gigabit wireless fabric. One of their company’s missions is to bridge the digital divide by providing high performance broadband connectivity to underserved communities around the world. Their 60 GHz millimeter wave solution brings expanded, cost-effective access at multi-gigabit wireless speeds to homes and businesses everywhere. With this achievement, they are changing the economics of broadband for urban, suburban, rural, industrial and enterprise environments.Building on its leadership in wireless broadband in developing communities, this also marks the first Cambium platform that is optimal for multi-gigabit urban deployments.60 GHz wireless systems represent a breakthrough development that is going to present major opportunities for service providers in terms of ease of deployment and lowering total cost of ownership. The technology will remove barriers that have slowed down the rollout of high-speed broadband by service providers. With Cambium’s entry to the market, it is now positioned to benefit from the fact that 60 GHz systems are an attractive alternative to other fixed solutions currently on the market at a disruptive cost.Cambium’s multi-gigabit wireless fabric extends multi-gigabit throughput from Wi-Fi (with the previously announced Wi-Fi 6 offerings) into wide area networks connecting businesses and residences in urban and dense environments. 60 GHz cnWave can also be used as wireless backhaul to Wi-Fi or other access networks at a fraction of the cost of wired networks. With this technology breakthrough, Cambium continues to disrupt network cost models by building out a multi-gigabit wireless fabric based on the convergence of both Wi-Fi and broadband backhaul.Dan Rabinovitsj, vice president for Facebook Connectivity stated that incorporating Terragraph into the cnWave 60 GHz wireless solution will enable Cambium Networks to rapidly deploy a reliable multi-gigabit solution and connect more people to fiber-like internet speeds in urban, suburban and rural environments. They are excited to see Cambium bring Terragraph-compatible products to market and look forward to seeing next generation ultra high speed wireless network deployment using their solutions.”We’re excited about finally being able to acquire fiber-like broadband performance and reliability at a fraction of the cost of fiber,” said Cameron Kilton, Chief Technology Officer of NextLink. “Until now, it required an expensive construction project to retrofit a congested, existing infrastructure. Now, we can significantly compress the time involved to achieve multi-gigabit connectivity without breaking the bank.””By harnessing 60 GHz mmWave spectrum, 60 GHz based on the 802.11ay standard holds enormous potential to unlock multi-gigabit wireless backhaul, providing an attractive and cost-effective wireless alternative to fixed wired solutions,” said Rahul Patel, senior vice president and general manager, connectivity, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We applaud technology innovators like Cambium as they provide high-speed wireless connectivity to more people, worldwide.”last_img read more

Medina Head Football Coach Dan Sutherland Steps Down

first_img Related TopicsDan SutherlandHigh School FootballMedinaOHSAA It was confirmed yesterday by several news outlets and the news continues to shock those who have heard it.  Dan Sutherland has stepped down as the head coach of Medina Varsity Football.We here at NEO Sports want to congratulate and wish good luck to coach Sutherland.  He is a great man, very humble and it was our honor to cover him and his team this year on their magical run,  They finished 8-2 and made it to the second round of the OHSAA High School Playoffs, despite the fact that starting quarterback John Curtis went down to injury in week five.Great job this season coach Sutherland!  Apparently we weren’t the only ones impressed with Coach as he was voted the Cleveland Browns High School coach of the year, an award he received yesterday on the field at Cleveland Browns Stadium. He was the lone bright spot of an otherwise miserable Sunday afternoon at the Factory of Sadness. Coach Sutherland addresses the reasons behind his decision earlier this evening on his Facebook page and had this to say.I want to take a minute to explain my recent decision and to thank everyone that has been so great to me. 1st my decision to step down: this is something my brother and I have been discussing and thinking about for sometime. I absolutely loved coaching the fine young men of the Medina football program. I always gave 100% of myself to this program and to the players. As this next season approaches I found myself not willing or able to give that 100%-and that’s not fair to the …program or the kids. I can’t expect them to give 100% if I can’t or I’m too tired to give my all. Also my brother and family are expecting our 1st baby in the family: the whole family is super excited! He informed me that he will not be coaching, as most of you know he is my best friend and a big part of why I coach. Being able to coach the sport I love with my best friend was such a thrill. Not having him by my side as my loyal assistant didn’t sound as much fun. Thirdly I’m exhausted, turning this program around took a lot out of me, more than I ever expected. I just need a break.I have been truly amazed at the out poring of support from the community, parents, players, school, administration and former players that have reached out to me. It has been humbling, and touching. I always coached for the love of the game and working with kids to teach life lessons that this great game offered. I hope and pray that people look at my time as head coach and see what the goal was: to develop men of character, honor, discipline and above all else, people the community would be proud of. Thank you all for a wonderful 5 years! Some of the best years of my life! Thank you for allowing me to be the head coach of an amazing school and community! I hope and pray I represented the program with passion, dignity, honor and the class that my family and parents have always tried to instill in me. I love you all and appreciate everything that was done for me. God Bless! Go Bees!Thanks,Dan Sutherlandcenter_img Vince McKeelast_img read more

Related Topics2017 NFL DraftBrownsMitch Trubisky Think the Browns are not serious about getting a quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft?Think again.The chatter is heating up surrounding the draft, and the latest from NFL Network’s Mike Silver has the Browns busy on the phone today, calling teams about moving up from their 12th position to somewhere in the top 8, all in the hopes of trading to draft quarterback Mitch Trubisky.“The Browns have been doing their due diligence and investigating the possibility,” Silver stated on NFL Network early Wednesday. “I’ve learned that at least three teams in the top eight have been contacted by the Browns and discussions have taken place about the prospect of moving up. Now this is something that would likely happen in real time when these teams were on the clock because obviously if the target is Mitchell Trubisky and he goes earlier than expected, then those discussions would be moot. “The Browns could still take Trubisky at No. 1,” Silver said. “They could still trade down and try to take him a little lower than one. The more likely scenario right now would be trying to use that 12th pick and get up a little higher to get the quarterback of the future.” Browns looking to move up from 12, targeting Trubisky. In that scenario they’d take Garrett at 1. At least 4 teams w/top 8 picks contacted.— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) April 26, 2017Likely there will be a lot more chatter between now and Thursday night – stay tuned. last_img read more

Report: Southampton U23s 1-2 Bristol City U23s

first_imgThe striker continued his electric start to the campaign as Jamie McAllister’s side won a tough encounter in the PL2 Cup. McCoulsky has spent the first two months on loan at Weston-super-Mare, scoring an incredible eight goals. His loan is due to expire next week, but with no fixture for Weston this weekend, McCoulsky linked up with the Under-23s to devastating effect. After a goalless first half, McCoulsky headed the opener from a Joe Morrell’s corner in the 55th minute, floating the ball back across goal and inside the far post. The same double act provided City’s second goal four minutes from time, with McCoulsky guiding his latest header inside the near post. Thomas O’Connor reduced the deficit in stoppage time for the hosts, but it proved no more than a consolation. It means have made a perfect start to their PL2 Cup four-team round robin group, consisting of the Saints, Newcastle United and Swansea City. Coach Jamie McAllister said: “We pressed them high, especially in the second half. It was a proper team performance all over the pitch. “We’d worked on our set-pieces because they mark zonally and Shawn got his head to the deliveries brilliantly. “That was us at it tonight and the boys have set the standard now. That type of performance has been coming and that was brilliant.” City Under-23s: Wollacott, Challis, Lyons-Foster, Harris, Kelly, Lemonheigh-Evans, Morrell, Difford (Edwards), Andrews, Nurse (Omofe), McCoulsky.last_img read more

Newcastle United official in Portugal at the weekend – Potential transfer…

first_imgNewcastle United were one of the clubs who had scouts watching Porto’s 4-0 win over Vitória de Setúbal on Sunday night. Newspaper Record reports the Magpies’ visit to the Estádio do Dragão, and it hasn’t been the first time they had officials watching the Portuguese side this season.Former Magpies defender Chancel Mbemba opened the scoring for the home side. Fabio Silva scored another, then Jubal helped Porto with an own goal, before Marega got the fourth.Marega is a player who’s been linked to Newcastle for a long time now, but the last market was one more summer the club didn’t make an attempt to sign him, even though he’d been available for €30m.With only four goals this season so far, the striker hasn’t been as impressive as in other years. And since he’s 28, it’s becoming less likely he’ll ever make the move to the Premier League.The match also attracted scouts from Valencia, Atalanta, Wolves, Manchester United and Milan.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?
